All Utahns deserve access to affordable healthcare, and Medicaid and Medicare needs to be preserved. We especially need to expand resources into the rural community.
Issues are interrelated, and one major contributor to poor air quality is traffic and transportation. Utahns want jobs close to their home that offer good pay, good hours, & affordable healthcare for their families.
Poor air quality is a significant deterrent for new families to move to Utah. I will focus on tackling the sources of the problem in Congress so our families can breathe.
Utah deserves common-sense leaders who will rise above politics and listen to their people. Unlike our current Congressman, I will serve our district with the honesty and responsiveness that Utahns deserve from their representative. From St. George to Bountiful to Tooele to Salt Lake—every voice needs to be heard. It’s time for our leadership to listen to and represent you, the people, and to focus on local and national issues that affect Utahns’ quality of life. As your representative, I will immediately work to expand Medicaid, promote sustainable job development, improve our air quality, and much more. I’m looking forward to coming to your door and learning about what’s most important to you.
